Future managerial hopes
Wayne Rooney has made it clear he wants to one day manage Manchester United.
The forward has admitted he wants to carry on his football career after hanging up his boots.
After appearing on BT Sport during the Manchester United win over Cardiff, he was asked about his plans.
Rooney confirmed he’s doing his badges.
He is of course also playing for DC United and has shone since moving to the MLS.
“I’m currently doing my coaching badges,” he told BT Sport.
“It’s something I’m passionate about. I want to go into coaching.
“Football is what I know, what I’ve grown up knowing and playing obviously, so I think it would be foolish if I didn’t go into coaching.
“If I’d like to manage Manchester United? Of course. One day that would be an absolute dream move.”
One thing Rooney has done to help United is message their new manager.
Rooney admitted he agreed with the sacking of Jose Mourinho.
He also said that things at the club needed to change.
“I texted Ole with what I felt needed to change!”
“No one at the club was enjoying it!”

The players are now working under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and looked free from the doom and gloom of the last few months.
Scoring five goals in a league game for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson left the club was a huge statement and the players are clearly happier than they have been in months.
